Bakeries in Kyoto – Shinshindo


You might think that people in Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital city, tend to eat more traditional Japanese food.  On the contrary, people here consume more bread per capita than any other cities in Japan.  There are many bakeries that sell freshly baked bread and pastries everywhere in Kyoto.  

Sinshindo is one of the oldest and most recognized bakeries in Kyoto.  Established in 1913, they have been a pioneer and the major contributor to Kyoto’s bakery culture for over 100 years. 

Shinshindo’s main shop on Teramachi street is only a couple of minutes walk from our salon.  We can even smell the nice aroma coming from the bakery when we open our windows in the morning!  They have a cafe style restaurant as well as an eat-in area where you can sit and enjoy the bread purchased from the store.

This is a great place to stop by for a quick meal or snack before or after coming to our salon.
